As Marcus tells us,complete with screenshot to prove it,
'Officials at a students’ union have claimed the use of a Nazi logo in advertising material for a German-themed social event was “a genuine mistake”.
Students at Aberystwyth University in Wales complained after the advert appeared on Facebook featuring an SS emblem.
The Bierkeller event is due to take place later this month featuring German-themed attractions including a lederhosen band.'The online publicity material showed an SS logo between English and Welsh translations on the poster.
In a statement issued on Monday evening the students’ union apologised “for any offence caused”....'In a paper that is meant to be "the newspaper of record" for the Jewish community of the UK even such small beer has its place.
Yet when Marcus was tipped off by e-mail (complete with screenshot to prove it) about an offence far more significant – namely the "9/11 Israel Did It" link by Stephen Sizer, a public figure with numerous followers and the potential to influence many minds – his reply was inexplicable.
For the man who had earlier reported on Sizer's transgressions and tussles with the Board of Deputies in effect said "Thanks but No Thanks".
The upshot? No report. No tweet. Not the slightest hint of Sizer's egregious post.
Marcus prefers small beer to a scoop of the hard stuff?!
Go figure. For I can't work it out.
